Automatically insert a decimal point - Select this check box to display a number with decimal points by default.
Places - Enter the number of decimal places in the Places box to indicate where Microsoft Office Excel automatically places the decimal point in the numbers that you type as constants on a worksheet. A positive number moves the decimal point to the left; a negative number moves the decimal point to the right. If the Places box is left blank or is set to 0 (zero), you need to enter the decimal point manually. To override this option, type a decimal point in the cell when you type the number.
Enable fill handle and cell drag-and-drop - Select this check box to move and to copy cells and data by dragging. When this option is selected, you can also drag the fill handle to copy data and to fill adjacent cells with a series of data.

Formulas that are repeated in every row are also copied. To be extended, formats and formulas must appear in at least three of the five last rows preceding the new row.
Enable automatic percent entry - Select to multiply by 100 all of the numbers less than 1 that you enter in cells that are formatted in the Percentage format. Clear this check box to multiply by 100 all of the numbers that you enter in cells that are formatted in the Percentage format, including numbers equal to or greater than 1.
Enable AutoComplete for cell values - Completes text entries that you start to type in a column of data. If the first few letters that you type match an existing entry in that column, Excel fills in the remaining text for you.
Automatically Flash Fill - (Added in 2013). Uses an algorithm for recognising patterns in your data and automatically predicts and can fill in the remaining cells for you. For more information refer to the Flash Fill page.
Zoom on roll with IntelliMouse - If you have the Microsoft IntelliMouse pointing device, sets the wheel button to zoom instead of scroll on your worksheet or chart sheet.
